10:03pm
to make, new york, safer are. skinnier and healthier whether we want to be or not. some great guests set to debate bloomberg initiatives ranging from cops stopping and frisking folks that they feel are suspicious to the banning of big gulp drinks we talked about last week and then outlawing the public sale of cigarettes. why is this important outside of the big apple? even if he is on the way out if history is any indication the nanny state is coming to a town near you. with the help of conservative icon ann coulter and mimi roth who reconciled up some of you last week we will debate the issues. ladies, welcome. let's start with the public sale of cigarettes. here again the mayor. >> we are proposing legislation that would prohibit display of tobacco products in most retail establishments. the reason, such displays suggest it as normal activity and they invite young people to experiment with tobacco.
10:04pm
>> i don't think it will change teenagers knowing about it. it wouldn't make a difference whether it was concealed or not. >> geraldo: isn't that kid right it doesn't make a difference? >> it makes a big difference. one the things i admire about mayor bloomberg is he is a student of behaviorial psychology. if you increase the in convenience you will decrease the behavior and consumption. it will reduce consumption absolutely. >> geraldo: like condoms or female hygiene products? >> but condoms is a different issue i think, geraldo are. >> geraldo: ann, are you a student of behavioral science? >> i think i do not want a may wore who is a behavioral scientist ex-pairmenting. the point, we should just have the death penalty for smokers. >> they do have a death penalty
10:05pm
self-induced. >> everything you can do to try to discourage behavior all comes down on the smoker. there is lots of behavior are that is worse. i praise the mayor for the campaign against teenage pregnancy as he calls it. the problem is unwed pregnancy and the liberals in the new york times upset about the shaming campaign. shaming clearly works. liberals love shaming. >> i agree. >> they love stigmatizing. when they pretend to be wednesday unwed motherhood they can't against it or allow stigmatizing. >> geraldo: before we get to liberals being against the stigmatization of unwed pregnancy stick to the cigarette displays. is the mayor right and isn't this is a giant step in the nanny state it. >> yes, and like big gulp. i think people are aware. i always claim i don't believe the studies on smoking but i'm
10:06pm
joking. people snow smoking is bad for you and all of the stick the worldcoms down on the one behavior if you make a personal decision that ends up costing others money somebody has to pick up that tab. that is what we found with smoking. not just the second hand smoke. the pollution. et cetera. the healthcare costs to all of us. if we are picking up the tab somebody has to help pay for that. same thing with obesity. those are the things that bloomberg are is addressing. >> but we didn't ask to pick up 9 tab. it is obama care that foisted it. >> you are wrong about that. >> and we have to wore arery about the the smokers because of obama care. >> you said that. >> we have to do something about the gay bathhouses because aids is expensive and if i'm paying for it. >> geraldo: do they still have guy bathhouses?
10:07pm
>> it is about insurance actuaries and if they determine things cost more money then you see insurance premiums g. the rest of us are hit with the costs. if gay bars were costing everyone a great deal of money and we were picking up the tab you might see enforcement there. that is not the case. >> why do you say it is not the case. >> if we are picking up the tab? >> geraldo: aren't the majority of aids patients on some kind of government coverage because the aids medication costs so much money. >> aids doesn't only affect homosexuals. >> and illegal drug use. mostly in this country it is homosexual behavior. i'm not the one that wants to go anything about it. if the argument is smoking we all have to pay. sodomy we all have to pape. you are saying go ahead and have is the bathhouses and have at it. >> now, i'm probathhouse.
10:08pm
>> geraldo: are you? >> i'm saying you have crack down on sed odomy. >> a very interesting topic. condoms a very interesting topic. >> geraldo: wait, wait. >> adults should do what they want to do with their own bodies let me say that, however. >> except in the case of smoking? >> whatever the decision you pick up the tab for the the consequences. let's go back to nannies. not just one kind of nanny. there is the kind that you don't seem to like and don't like who is motivated by wanting to save lives. bloomberg is that kind of nanny. other kinds of nannies that want you to eat more and more of the wrong thing and they are motivated by profit. there is not just one kind of nanny. >> geraldo: ann is there more than one kind of nanny. in. >> no, bloomberg is a politically correct nanny as are you. >> geraldo: is he more than -- >> i not actually. >> unless you are the one sodomized. >> going back to bloomberg.
10:09pm
>> that costs a lot more. you know, if we have the nanny state let's have the nanny state. >> geraldo: at what point is the nanny state really leadership and helping new yorkers to become safer and healthier and live longer? and have pfizer crimes? >> it is whatever they are chattering about at gay bars that suddenly bloomberg will crack down on. >> that is a nonsense thing. >> geraldo: ann is rolling her eyes. finish. go back to the the zay bars. >> the behaviors that liberals approve of they will not is stigmatize. the behaviors they disapprove of. has nothing to do with the body count or healthcare. i will geithner mat icy they are upset bloomberg is stigmatizing. sodomy will not stigmatizing smoking if we are thinking about it for health costs i can think of a lot more things that are costing. >> mimi, what do you think
10:10pm
about and frisk where police can be proakron ittive if you enjoy and appreciate proactive behavior to prevent a harm? nothing is more grievous than murder. what about stop and frisk to search kids or young people they feel are suspicious and get their guns before they use them? >> in many cases it proved effective so i'm not completely against stopping and frisking. i don't think it is -- i think it is necessary. i think profiling is necessary. that is the times we live in. >> geraldo: so that is a stunning answer from a liberal. >> outraged guys call me a liberal. i'm case by case. >> geraldo: fine with me. ann, what do you think? >> i want to use drones for stop and frisk. >> geraldo: just like a hellfire strike. >> geraldo: what do you think of stop and frisk seriously? >> it's saving lives of course, i'm for it. i'm sorry i have foregotten his name. i didn't know you would ask me about stop and frisk. thraves black councilman, a small child like four years old was shot in a drive also by
10:11pm
shooting or something and he said you know screw it i'm for stop and fringe now we can't have the innocent chmowed down. >> geraldo: on the happy note we all agree. thank you very much. coming up you will meet several stories. first of all, the luckiest high school kid in america is here to reveal how he used you tube to score a prom date with kate upton. joe the blu plumbers to tell uy he is raffling off his a.r. 15. and craig investigates in prime time whether several missing models were kidnapped by the same serial rapist. a big show tonight.

bob will retire when he's 153, which would be fine if bob were a vampire. but he's not. ♪ he's an architect with two kids and a mortgage. luckily, he found someone who gave him a fresh perspective on his portfolio. and with some planning and effort, hopefully bob can retire at a more appropriate age. it's not rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade.
10:13pm
i use bounce outdoor fresh sheets because they're just that much fresher and they help keep static off in the cold
10:14pm
so my clothes will never embarrass me. mommy, i dressed the snowman! how do you get your bounce? less static year-round. at the corn arer of ellis and london. baby has been shot. >> okay. listen to me, ma'am. is the baby breathing? >> i don't know. >> okay. >> i just came out the. >> did you hear any shots in the area? >> i heard the shots. >> how many shots did you hear?
10:15pm
>> i heard like three shots. >> three shots. >> and the baby was shot? in the head. >> she is bleeding? >> she is still alive and she is trying to do cpr. the mother is. >> i hate you and i don't forgive you in that you killed an innocent human life and that i hope you die for it. >> blood flows in the streets of high crime neighborhoods from that case, brunswick georgia to chicago, illinois. new york city enjoying a dramatic drop in murder and gun violence and mayor bloomberg knows why. >> this year murders are down 33% from last year which was a record. they are down 35% from o from r before. they are down 42% from the year before that. this past week with the city of 8.4 million people we had one murder. i can't imagine any rational
10:16pm
person saying that the techniques are not working and that we should stop them. >> i have had this experience all too many times and many of my comrades and friends, relatives have also had the same experience of being stopped for no reason without any justification. >> if elected mayor the city comp troller will end stop and frisk but new york city councilman says that would be a big mistake. the comp troller, welcome. good luck to both of you. why would you "smoking stops frisk.top of thwhy would you ed >> it is a tactic pitting the police against community leaders and members of the pub live and division and distrust h led to much less cooperation between the community and the police and led to a spike in lawsuits and claims by the community against the nypd and distracting resources from it
10:17pm
tactics that i believe work like focused deterrents in other cities who have seen reductions in crime and have not resorted to shortstop and frisk. >> we had 414 last year. if we had chicago's. over 4,000 here in new york city. it doesn't work in other cities and it the a big reason stop and frisk and one of the reasons we do have the lower murder rate. two days ago a shooting. a gang banger follows other individuals and police use their experience and followed him and observed him make a move to his waist and they approached and he shoots at them and shoot back and get him. in chicago and detroit three other individuals are dead. a little child killed a drive biand then you make the arrest. in new york city you get the gun and stop the killing. there have been reductions in other cities as well. talk about the numbers because the mayor and police commissioner often cited the
10:18pm
numbers. in 20002 there were 587 murders and 9 p thousand stop and frisks. 2011, 515 murders. a slight reduction from the 587 but there were 685,000 stop and frisks. what i have a problem with is when you read about almost 700,000 people being stopped and frisked almost all of whom have done nothing wrong because those are the statistics you expect to read that about a third world dictatorship. not in north america certainly not here in new york city. the cost is the racial profiling aspect. it is hard to guy that there is racial profiling when almost everyone being stopped is brown or black. >> geraldo: do you have a response to that, councilman? >> the arguement that the controller is makingnd and he is a friend of mine actually. >> we ride harleys together.
10:19pm
>> geraldo: that makes three of us. >> the argument is that people should be stopped based on how they exist in the population or this is a racist program. that would mean 50% of the people be stopped should be women. it is not a racist policy. the police department is the most diverse in the entire universe. the people making stops, the majority of minority. when you look at open complaint reports the people that do the stopping are the same groups the people are pointing out. >> geraldo: this is my situation. i think that here you have a mayor who was a republican and later became an independent. a democrat and then a republican and. >> we don't know what the next step is. >> geraldo: a if a liberal democrat is elected and i wish you the best, you have done a fine job as controller. >> we will make big changes here in new york. >> geraldo: but i think one of the changes i am afraid of is you will end stop and frisk and
10:20pm
why is it directed at latino and black kids because they are the ones doing the shooting and dock the bleeding and the dying. look at chicago. my goodness, if you need any more of an example look at philadelphia. north philadelphia they call it killadelphia. it is like the tsa at the airport searching the old ladies and people in the wheel chair because they don't want to be guilty of racial profiling. you have to rayial profile a race. >> there is no excuse for racial profiling. >> geraldo: what if the statistics you are a mayor and the murder starts ticking up what will you do? >> if it was true you that a lot of people stopped and frisked were guilty of something or the police could even issue them a summons and then you combine that with the fact that the racial [ indiscernible ] parities are there that possibly is excusable. >> geraldo: last year chicago had four in a day and chicago is one third the size of new york. >> pick and choose some other.
10:21pm
>> new orleans. detroit. >> it is a very weak excuse to have this kind of tactic where again it is racial profiling because almost everybody being stopped and frisked is black or brown. be even in predominantly white neighborhoods and the fact that almost everybody being stopped and frisked has done nothing wrong. >> i wrote the antiracial profiling law in new york city and you cannot stop somebody based on race. even with stop and frisk you can only stop somebody based on reasonable suspicion of committing a crime. racial stops are wrong. are happening? a few are. we had a bad cop once that killed his wife. of course, some bad cops are happening. we have to keep the constant monitoring and constant hearings. it is a strain on the cops and community. >> it is not a strain. we want to keep driving crime down. >> geraldo: come trolling good luck.
10:22pm
i knew your dad and his grandfather. good luck. >> thank you. >> geraldo: coming up why joe the plumber is giving away his the plumber is giving away his big i'm the world's worst cleaning lady. i'm here in your home, having a pretty spectacular tuesday. ♪ but i don't notice the loose rug at the top of your stairs. and that's about to become an issue for me. ♪ and if you got the wrong home insurance coverage, my medical bills coulget expensive. so get allstate.

10:26pm
of the senate gun control bill. still, joe the plumber is raffling off his ar 15. why are you raffling off the gun? >> i want to encourage americans to stand firm in the face of political correctness because that is the battle coming all about control and kind of like the previous guests about the nanny state. it is not to infringe upon our right because some strange lunatic decided to kill people. you don't sit there and take the rights from americans. and these guys barack obama has taken a page from rahm emanuel's book to take advantage of a crisis to try to disarm citizens. i have been a gun owner my life. i take the kids out hunting and we practice. my family feels secure. and as far as the ban on a 30 round clip. there is not enough rounds out there to protect my family and for him to sit there and say
10:27pm
something like that just it makes me angry. how much is too much to protect my family? >> geraldo: hold up that weapon. hold up the weapon you have there in your house. hold it up. no you what do you use that for? >> an ar 15 colt with a scope furnished by my friends at best request. this is set up at 700-yards. competition shooting and sporting rifle. some people go out and shoot just to have fun at the target ranges and others at competition. a lot of people like it for home safety and you know why because it is their right to have it. >> geraldo: doesn't it make you queasy that adam lanza used the same weapon to kill the children? >> a knife has killed more are people than gun have. there is still brooks out there, too. i'm not a deranged lunatic and he was. >> geraldo: and how do people before we run out of time, how
10:28pm
do peel get involved in the raffle? >> go to joe for america .com and sign up for the ar 15. one last thing, just like karl rove but conservative. >> geraldo: hold it a little higher. can't see it. hold it a little higher. joe for america.org. i like the high prized graphics there. how is your poe let cal aspirations going. >> i'm enjoying being an activist and getting behind great people. i'm having fun making things happen. >> geraldo: i appreciate you coming on. thanks very much. >> geraldo: several aspiring models have gone missing recently. all of them using the same modeling website. here is the question that we ask in the investigation tonight there a serial rapist and killer of these models on the loose vo: always one step ahead with an intuitive motion activated lid and seat,

that clarkson killed herself. on sunday night, hbo has a spectacular murder out about the murder and the trial stars al pacino and the great hell lin miron playing linda baden. she is married to dr. michael baden who testified for the defense in the first trial. edward losi on your right. a well known publicist in town who knew the victim well and he is fighting mad about the entire hbo project. first edward, become both of you gentlemen. edward, why are you angry with the movie which purports to be fact-based? >> geraldo, first off, lana clarkson was not phil specter's girlfriend. she didn't even know him three hours before he murdered her. so for the correction. >> geraldo: wait, that was
10:54pm
their first date? >> yeah. >> geraldo: that was their first date? i did not know that. >> so this hbo film it murders the truth like phil specter murdered lana. it as scam on the american public. this is a shameful situation. shame on david for writing this. shame on barry levinson for making a quick buck on it and shame most of all on the hbo executives who greenlighted this. it has nothing to do with the truth. but it also brings an insult to our dear friend lana clarkson and that is why i'm here. the friends are lana clarkson made up of 50 people in the entertainment business who knew her, loved her and worked with her. this film is -- starts out with a screen misnomer that says this is actually not really based on truth it is fiction
10:55pm
and a myth logical sort of a thing. they were forced to do that because of two years we have been fighting this film and what it is about. you can't say it as fiction when you are using real people's names. >> geraldo: what is your biggest beef edward? what is the biggest beef about it? >> the biggest beef is that it portrays lana clarkson as being responsible for are her own death. this trial was two years. two different trials. a jury convict #-d him. this movie takes away any kind of faith in the american jury system. all of the evidence that dr. baden and his wife which is still we don't understand the conflict of interest, how can a wife bring in a forensic expert who was paid $103,000 for his testimony which the brilliant district attorney allen jackson brought out in the trial, how can you even be part of this
10:56pm
fall lacy? can't is your cake and eat it both, hbo. >> geraldo: you made a big charge there. dr. michael baden he is suggesting that you altered your testimony for money. you can respond directly to the charge but i would also like you to tell us why you thought there was ambiguity about whether she killed herself. >> he looked at it differently than i looked at it. i saw the preview. has nothing to do with what he is talking about. has nothing to do with determining whether lana clarkson was guilty of homicide or accidental self-inflicted which was testified to by various experts in the first trial because nobody can kill somebody hom homicideally by putting a gun in his mouth. that happens even playing around with it for example. nothing to do with the film. what he was talking about in the film between al pacino and
10:57pm
helen miron was the constant attention between the celebrity, between public emotions and forensic science. because the forensic science which i testified to and i was called in on day one and i was present and participated in the autopsy on lana clarkson. my wife came in about two or three years later well beyond my involvement in the case. >> geraldo: so your wife didn't bring you in, you were in? >> i was brought in on day one by the attorneys that the time. >> geraldo: so dose edward owe you an apology? >> he is wrong and sure, he owes me. i didn't get $103,000. but he makes up things i see from this. the first contact i have seen. >> excuse me, excuse me. may i interrupt. >> geraldo: let him finish. >> and what mammoth dose brilliantly in the film is to show the conflict that happened
10:58pm
in many cases. this is not lanaing clarkson at issue here and he doesn't make it lana clarkson at issue. he makes it attention in all homicides between -- the tension in all homicides between the forensic science, emotions and in this case celebrity. >> geraldo: edward, go ahead. >> okay. shame on you, dr. baden. you know that you were paid. allen jackson said in front of the jury and me. >> geraldo: then he was wrong. he was wrong. >> no, no, no. >> then he was wrong. you did this for free? >> no, i wasn't paid the amount that you said. much less than that. i was an expert and i participated in the autopsy. >> let's talk about what we are really upset about is this trial making it look like a 40-year-old beautiful person named lana clarkson had nothing better to dothan to blow her brains out. >> it doesn't say that at all.
10:59pm
that is not in there at all. >> it does say it. >> did you see the movie? >> yes, i did. >> okay. >> i have seen the movie twice. we were at the l.a. screening. and it shows. >> geraldo: i thought you protested outdoors? >> we were inside. >> you are sure you saw the film? you are sure you saw the film? >> i have a copy of the film. i have the film. >> geraldo: you may have is it physically. you did watch the movie? >> i saw the movie. and that is why i'm here today, okay. i saw the movie. >> geraldo: you were pro. >> you were protesting before we saw the movie. >> because we knew what was going to happen. we have been working on two years and we have been writing to everybody on the set. >> specter was convicted the second time and doing 19 years to life. edward you are dear friend of hers. hers.
